Yes open practice Friday, just sign up in Shop before hitting the track.

Times for Friday will be 10am-5pm (track will close) we will probably treat the track after 5pm to have it ready for Saturday morning Qualifiers. The treating on Friday depends on weather forecast.

**On site registration will CLOSE Saturday 9am Saturday**
We will get RcSign up, posted. Sign-up using RcSign will help determine better times.

Gates open at 8am Saturday for Qualifiers to start at 10am (3-4 5min Qualifiers) depending on entries, weather and time.

Sunday gates open at 8am Mains start at 10am.

A Mains 45min
B Mains 30min
C Mains 20min
D and below 15min

As you know this is one thing I don't have any control over. I hope and pray the rain gets here before Friday if it's coming, because if it does it usually leaves the weekend Nice.

It's was 30-40% forecast for rain today. Not one drop fell.
